A convicted murderer who sexually assaulted and strangled a Kalihi teenager was sentenced for those crimes.
During a sentencing hearing in Circuit Court Monday morning, Corbit Ahn didn't talk about the death of 18-year-old Iris Rodrigues-Kaikana. She had been beaten and killed in 2009. The teenager's partially nude body was found in an alleyway behind Kamehameha Homes.
Her father made an emotional plea before the judge, asking for Ahn to be locked up and the key thrown away.
"The guy don't belong on the streets, he deserves to be locked up for life. The highest sentence we have here is life without parole and that's what he deserves," said Steven Rodrigues.
Ahn's mother also addressed the court to ask for leniency for her son.
"I'm sorry for your daughter Mr. Rodrigues, but my son didn't do it," said Cynthia Ahn.
Throughout the proceedings, Ahn showed no emotion and caused the judge to question if the convicted murderer should be eligible for parole.
"You are a person who has no compassion, no empathy for others and someone who lacks any remorse for his actions," said Judge Richard Pollack.
But in the end, Ahn was sentenced to life with the possibility of parole. As a repeat felony offender, he must serve a mandatory minimum of 10 years before being eligible for parole.
It was a sentence that angered Rodrigues, who said he will be at Ahn's future parole hearings -- to remind everyone of how his little girl was killed.
